Here at Lake Worth Chiropractic and Wellness, we are dedicated to providing seniors with natural treatments to help them live active and full lives. Our chiropractor has taken the time to answer a few of the most common questions we receive from older adults that are interested in chiropractic care for back pain and health and wellness.
Is chiropractic care safe for senior citizens?
Chiropractic care is completely safe for senior citizens. In fact, the majority of our patients are older adults with significant back pain. Seniors generally have more age related back problems than their younger counterparts, including degenerating disc, arthritis and bulging and herniated discs. Chiropractic adjustments combined with senior wellness care can help heal these ailments, which reduces back pain and improves overall health.
What benefits can I expect when I start treatment with your chiropractor in Lake Worth?
Our chiropractic treatment options are designed to work with your body to heal current and old injuries. As your treatments progress, you should notice a reduction in your back pain and an improvement in your stamina, mobility and overall health.
Will receiving regular chiropractic care help heal the injury causing my back pain?
If you are suffering from bulging, herniated or slipped discs, sciatica or a degenerative disc disease, chiropractic care can help heal the underlying injuries that are causing your back and nerve pain. As the discs slowly retract back into their proper positions, you will notice a reduction in your back pain and any associated nerve and leg pain. This should improve your overall stability and reduce your risk for slips and falls.
Can chiropractic care help prevent slips and falls?
Senior citizens are prone to slipping and falling due to loss of balance, back pain and muscle weakness. Chiropractic adjustments can help prevent slips and falls by ensuring your spine is in its proper alignment. Our senior wellness care program can help you eat healthier and provide you with lifestyle advice to help you avoid future injuries.
Do I need a referral to begin treatment?
You do not need a referral to begin treatment at our clinic. However, your insurance might request a referral from your regular doctor before they agree to pay for treatments. For more information, please call or stop by our office. Our helpful staff would be happy to answer your treatment and insurance questions.
Do you accept insurance? What types of payment plans do you have?
We accept most types of health insurance, including Medicare. If you would like to check to see if your health insurance is covered at our office, please call us or stop by our office. If you do not have insurance, we also offer payment plans that are affordable.
